You're going to HAVE to post before and after shots of your garden when this is all done.
I can give you a preview of the front yard which is about half finished.

This is what it looked like when we first moved in



No-one could work out where our 'front' door was. Our house is side-on so that both the front and back doors are on the sides. People kept coming to our back-door which I don't like because some of them would leave the gate open and I worried that Miss Chicken will get out of the yard.

This is what it looks like now.



Now at least people can see the front steps though the post lady who delivers parcels is still coming to the back door. I will probably put in a path from the street to the front steps later in the year. I now have a good view of the street from my loungeroom and get more sun in the afternoon. I think I should have got bigger pots for the front of the house. I wish the Housing Department would paint the wooden eaves.

The lawn still looks a little tatty in the areas I took out the trees/bushes. I am hoping it will look better by next year.
